11 Weeks...God is Good!

Well, I had a little scare the other day. Thursday night I had some spotting. Freaked me right out. I was literally sobbing thinking that it was all over. I called my wonderfully sweet and calm mother and she advised me to wait it out and see how it was in the morning. There was nothing I could do whether it was a miscarriage or not. (My body is on it's own timing and living it's own life right now...I'm pretty much on the sidelines through this So, by the morning the bleeding was pretty much gone and was very light. That was a good sign. I called my doctor's office anyway and they advised me to go to Emergency to get an ultrasound just to make sure everything was okay. So, we did. 6 hours later we left the hospital very much relieved. They took blood to find out what type I am (O positive), gave me an internal exam (with 4 people in the room with me...ya, that wasn't awkward at all! :P) and a bedside ultrasound (they're not as clear as regular ones, but enough to show the heartbeat.) I was ALL smiles through the ultrasound, seeing my little baby move around. The doctor had to keep changing the position of the stick because it was moving so much...we'll see how much kicking I endure from this child later on in the pregnancy. The doctor was able to see the heartbeat flicker, and so could my husband, but the light was shining on the screen too much for me to see. But, I get another one either tomorrow or Tuesday (or both) and it will be an actual one. I'll even get a picture!! I'm SUPER excited for that!

In other news, my nausea is subsiding! YAY! I still feel it sometimes but, not as much. It comes and goes. It's more just that certain foods don't sound or smell appealing at all. The only problem with the nausea going away is that I'm getting hungry more often. Right now McDonald's sounds sooooooooooo good!!! It can be really hard to eat healthy sometimes when only one thing sounds appealing at all...sheesh!

So, I'm very thankful that everything turned out to be fine. I guess it happens to a lot of women, especially early on in pregnancy, but it never hurts to get it checked never know! God is sooo good!
